Rising Path opens at Cambridge University Botanic Garden

last modified Sep 27, 2018 10:05 AM
CambPlants was invited to the press preview of the 'Rising Path' at the Botanic Garden for a chance to see the new feature designed to offer a fresh perspective on the Garden's Systematic Beds. The feature opened to the public on Saturday 22 September.

The Rising Path is part of the Garden's Understanding Plant Diversity Project, a three-year project supported by the Monument Trust, aiming to revitalise the contemporary relevance of the Garden's Systematic Beds for researchers, teachers and visitors by offering exciting new ways to explore how plant diversity is identified and organised - the science of plant taxonomy.

You can read more about the Rising Path and the project behind it here. The Rising Path has been designed by Chadwickdryerclarke studio - you can find out more about the construction process on their website here
